House and garage should be placed in smallish piece of land in pine forest in such a way that satisfy all needs and retain natural landscape. There was found simple and logical solution to carry out construction project as compact cube. On the ground floor were located guest zone and garage, on the second is private zone: children’s room, bedroom with wardrobe and bathroom.

There is large window placed in the kitchen-dinner-lounge zones that family members enjoy view of pine forest. Second-level lighting adds airiness of space: housemistress would like to feel easy and light ‘breathing’ here. This idea line is supported by stairs of special construction on the second floor: it, in fact, does not occupy much place and railing of crashworthy glass makes it almost weightless. This element along with transparent wall of upper level permits comfortable communication between floors – that have special importance in the family with children.

Designer created bedroom of calm, comfortable and relaxing mood: for this reason tone down the grey colours and balanced tones of natural wood were applied. The most essential element of this interior is total correspondence of eco concept: the floor cover with oak, curtains and covers are of 100% wool, bed-side tables are snags and the view from the window is pines.
